The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah have reached the Iraqi border southwest of the ISIS-held town of al-Bukamal, according to pro-government sources.
The SAA and Hezbollah are now deployed near Akash fields and de-facto controls the road headign to the Iraqi city of al-Qaim, which was liberated by the Iraqi Army and the Popular Mobilization Units on Friday.
As soon as Syrian forces liberated Akash and secure their flanks, they will push towards al-Bukamal. Some sources say that ISIS members are now withdrawing from their stronghold. If true, al-Bukamal will be liberated within few days.
